      I'm thinking of registering a new domain to host a personal blog and a few other pages that is somewhat separate from my current personal portfolio page, as the blog will likely not be directly relevant to my work. But since this is a more personal project, I want to branch out in terms of TLDs - I've previously used exclusively .com endings as they lead to the least confusion and are the most accepted.

      I'm a little overwhelmed by the number of options these days, so I wanted to take a little straw poll to see which ones people think are the best. The name itself will be my initials "gpxl", and the endings I am considering are

      • .info
      • .xyz
      • .fyi
      • .computer
      • .me

      But I'm curious to see what others think. I would go with .xyz but I feel like then my domain name becomes an unintelligble string of letters - gpxl.xyz, so I'm wondering what others think and what arguments exist for choosing one over another.

      P.S. If anyone has recommendations for registars I'm open to those too. Currently using google domains but open to switching.

    2. Is it OK to use pop media reference for a personal domain name?

      I'm finally in a position in my life to afford a personal domain. The name I'd like to use is name of an episode from a moderately popular TV series. The series ended its run few years ago, but...

      I'm finally in a position in my life to afford a personal domain. The name I'd like to use is name of an episode from a moderately popular TV series. The series ended its run few years ago, but I'm not sure how copyright/trademarks work.

      So far, I'm planning a strictly noncommercial personal use only. Will the choice of domain name be any trouble down the road?

    3. Good domain registrars?

      Looking to pick up a domain name for a personal site and was wondering if anyone could recommend a good registrar. The whole domain name industry always feels more than a bit shady, so I'm wary of...
